A new poll conducted by the Oregonian newspaper has found that, despite a year of protests against the police, a vast majority of residents in Portland, don't want to see a decrease in law enforcement presence.
According to the survey, 75 percent of Portland-area residents said they don't want policing in the city to dip below its current levels. Half said they want more cops on the streets, while 24 percent said they want policing levels to remain the same.
Less than a quarter of Portland-area residents believe there should be fewer cops on the streets. Just 15 percent of respondents living in the city proper said they wish to see a decrease in police presence, Newsweek reports.
